An engineering PhD student from The University of Western Australia with an interest in developing environmentally friendly oil and gas drilling processes has been globally recognised as one of the top 15 young engineering professionals in the petroleum engineering industry.
A new cutting-edge facility at The University of Western Australia will explore biological markers associated with human health, agriculture (crops and livestock), and the diverse flora and fauna on land and marine environments.
Animals that have a darker pigmented surface on the upper side of their body compared to those that have the same shade all over can reduce the impact of their body shadows and remain hidden from predators, according to a new study by researchers at The University of Western Australia.

On a satellite photo, the Ashmore Reef Marine Park is no more than a tiny teal dot in the middle of the Timor Sea about 630 km north of Broome, perching on the edge of Australia’s continental shelf. But this small and isolated tropical reef and its three islands form a sanctuary for an abundance of marine and terrestrial life within its boundaries.
Scientists from The University of Western Australian and University of Cambridge have made a chance discovery in UK museum collections, finding hollow ball-like structures in 80-million-year-old fossils from species believed to be related to starfish and sea urchins.
If we give in to our frustrations and ease up too quickly on COVID-19 restrictions - beyond what the Government advises is acceptable - then the highly infectious virus could get out of hand very quickly, warns Professor Jon Watson, Executive Dean of The University of Western Australia's Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
Women are more likely to conceive fraternal twins once they reach their 30s as a result of an evolutionary response to combat declining embryo viability, according to a new international collaboration involving researchers at The University of Western Australia.
While each Australian is dealing with pandemic mental health stressors in their own way, COVID denial is an ineffective approach to dealing with anxiety that could prove dangerous to the country if it emerges as a social distancing backlash, according to psychology expert Professor Colin MacLeod.
